    Just a moment of bragging and a a little PSA

    So ya, NVMe SSDs, they are godly.

    Built a new system and seeing the advertised numbers of the NVMe stuff I had to give it a try. Made sure I'd have a 4x pcie 3.0 capable slot and support for it. Didnt expectr to hit the claimed speeds(similar to how I never did with HDDs) but I wanted to get as close as possible.

    The Samsung 960 EVO advertises 3200 MB/sec sequential read speed and 1900 MB/sec sequential write speed.

    The actual result, well from benchmark softrware, is 3301 MB/sec sequential read speed and 1854 MB/sec sequential write speed.

    Really is amazing, so my PSA is get NVMe SSDs Or at least systems that support them.

    They are the ****. No upgrade has ever felt so drastic. Load times in games, photo editing software loading, large install files like Nvidia driver packages, all load up in a second.
    Also, felt so weird installing it with the angled start and then pressing it flat.

    You're killing me here. I'm trying to pull the trigger on a new system but I keep talking myself out of it. I'd really like that kind of performance.

    Ya all the meltdown and spectre stuff was making me want to hold off, then my PC died so I had no choice, went with an AMD Ryzen 2600X.

    Nice... sounds like a blast. I was considering a PCIe based M.2 when building a box a couple of months back as well, may have to do it next time around.
